If you're like us, you despise suiting up with bulky pads that make you sweat to death and restrict critical motion while climbing and pedaling swiftly down the trail. Luckily, POC created the Joint VPD Air Knee Pads to protect your knees from nasty impacts and abrasion, but without sacrificing key movements with their lightweight, flexible feel. The secret to this flexible design with high levels of protection lies in POC's VPD padding. Standing for visco-elastic polymer dough, VPD remains soft and pliable while moving and pedaling, but then firms up to dissipate crushing blows once it's subjected to a crash. This way, you'll be able to ride freely and without restriction, plus you'll remain protected from crashes along the way. It's a win-win in our book, so much so that we highly recommend this set of knee pads to everyday trail riders.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
